Minglewood joined his first band, the Rockin’ Saints, when he was in his late teens, playing local high school dances, and even tavern gigs before he was old enough to get into bars. He played organ and rhythm guitar.
When he was in his early twenties he was part of a band called 'Sam Moon, Matt Minglewood & The Universal Power'. The group was formed in 1969 with Sam Moon  and Minglewood sharing vocal duties. The band soon changed their name to Moon - Minglewood and performed regularly in the Halifax/Dartmouth metro area, becoming a staple at local high school dances in the area.
Minglewood briefly sang lead vocals and played guitar for Peppertree, then formed Cold Duck, and then in 1974 formed The Minglewood Band, a band which toured Canada extensively and achieved a measure of national success. The Minglewood Band recorded their first album with Solar Records in 1975. Soon after the album was released they signed a major label deal with RCA Records. The group received a 1980 Juno Award nomination for the Most Promising Group of the Year.
From 1984 to 1985, Minglewood took a sabbatical before launching a solo career. In the mid 1980s to early 1990s he was also part of an annual seasonal troupe called the Cape Breton Summertime Revue, consisting of about 12 members performing musical and comedy skits for all ages throughout the Maritimes.
